The No. 66 Ford GT of Joey Hand, Dirk Mueller and Sébastien Bourdais will wear the colors of the Roush Racing Motorcraft Ford Mustang that John Jones, Wally Dallenbach Jr. and Doc Bundy drove to a GTO victory at the Rolex 24 At Daytona in 1985.

Jones won the IMSA driver’s championship title in the GTO category after dominating the competition that year.

The No. 67 of Richard Westbrook, Ryan Briscoe and Scott Dixon will carry a throwback tribute to current race team partner Castrol.

IMSA's BOP numbers for the Ford GT in the GT Le Mans class were upped for the Roar Before the 24. Gained 20 kg of weight and lost boost between 5500 and 7200 rpm while most competitors were given more favorable numbers.

No surprise there.

Hard to say how hard anyone was trying but the Fords did post the 1st and 3rd fastest times during test session #6. One of the Vettes was 2nd.

GT Le Mans saw Richard Westbrook clock a 1min43.083sec in the #67 Ford GT, a full 0.423sec clear of the second placed Corvette C7.R, yet still the whole nine-car class was covered by only 0.77sec.

Joey Hand was third in the second Ford, while John Edwards showed some real pace from the fastest BMW M8 to beat Earl Bamber’s Porsche, Davide Rigon’s Ferrari 488 of Risi Competizione, Tom Blomqvist (BMW), Nick Tandy (Porsche) and Oliver Gavin (Corvette).
